BBC America has quietly updated its page recently for Ripper Street (starring Matthew Macfadyen as Inspector Edmund Reid) and now has listed a new US premiere date for Season 2 (which was originally to air last December 1st, 2013, but due to BBC One canceling the series after 2 seasons in the UK, citing their reasons for axing it was due to poor ratings). It is now going to premiere next month on Saturday, February 22, 2014 at 9/8c on BBC America.
Ripper Street – Second Season Premieres February 22, 2014 at 9/8c on BBC America.
BBC AMERICA’s Victorian London crime series returns with stars Matthew Macfadyen, Jerome Flynn, Adam Rothenberg and Myanna Buring as Inspector Reid, Sergeant Drake, Captain Jackson and madam Long Susan. The new season moves the action forward to 1890. As the century enters its final decade, the streets teeter on the brink of moral collapse, and nowhere is the declining British Empire’s problems felt more keenly than in its dark heart: the East End of London. Ripper Street is produced for BBC ONE by Tiger Aspect Productions, Lookout Point and BBC AMERICA.
